Detectives Investigating Tremont Double Homicide

CLEVELAND - Homicide detectives are investigating the deaths of a man and woman found dead in the Tremont neighborhood Friday.

Police say the front door of the home on Scranton Road had been forced open, and investigators found a man shot in the head, dead on scene. The 63-year-old was an employee at Cleveland State, and school officers performed a welfare check after he didn't show up to work.

After further search, officers also discovered the body of a woman underneath a bed, and say she showed "obvious signs of violence," although it's not clear specifically how she died.

The woman has been identified as 54-year-old Rita Berish. The male victim's name has not yet been released.

Officials are currently investigating this incident as a double homicide, and have yet to make an arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cleveland Division of Police detective bureau at (216) 623-5464.
